    it's not THAT AOL. They get Engadget, Huffington Post and other sites plus they get the video tech they want to start their own video service.

    Verizon over pays for AOL by 4.4 billion.

    This just seems like a really stupid deal for Verizon.

    HuffPo is a great acquisition since they pay their writers NOTHING.

    I was unaware they had writers, I thought all of their content was copy pasted from elsewhere.
